As writers, we often need to make ourselves feel certain emotions. The thing is, when I’m sitting in my bedroom eating ice cream and trying to type at the same time, the likelihood of me feeling extreme sorrow over a breakup that isn’t mine, is pretty low…until music comes along. If you’re a writer and you don’t use music to help you write, let me just say, I have no clue how you’re doing it. Anway, here is a list of songs that are fabulously full of emotions.
